The North Carolina Historical Reenactment Society, founded in 1960, portrays the 6th North Carolina Continental Line Regiment during the Revolutionary War, as well as local militias from the French and Indian War through the late Revolutionary War. We visit historic sites throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, and beyond, where we reenact battles and demonstrate eighteenth century skills and camp life. We have fun together; our members would not devote so many financial and temporal resources to the hobby if we did not love living history. We take historical reenacting very seriously and pride ourselves on the high quality of our interpretations of eighteenth century life. As reenactors, we share our historical knowledge with the public through these interpretations. In this manner, we can vividly explain the past, the everyday men and women who demanded freedom from colonial rule, and the social customs that defined their daily lives.
